Awaking From a Dreamy Slumber


Author Comments

This is a collaboration that we made for a competition on chipscompo.com

There was some overlap, but everratic focused on the orchestral sections whereas Spadezer focused on the electronic sections.

We hope you enjoy it!


The old times were filled with pleasant memories. Many fond moments of joyful laughs and warm love. Such pleasant hauntings that fill the slumber. However, the harshness of reality is ever-present. The cruelty and greed that surrounds me is huge, and cold, and terrifying. How can anyone stand this world? How can anyone deal with the pain, and the agony. I wish for the familiar days that kept me happy. All I have are those memories, and I hold them so dear. But the problem with those memories is that they're of the past and not what's in the present. So try as I may to hold on to their warmth, their structure, and their peace, they cannot withstand the present fears that face me. And I'm reminded yet again wherever I turn, that the world is not merciful. The world has no love for life, and no love for joy.

But yet, what sounds like a foreign thought that is unwilling to escape my fears. I do not have to tremble under this weight. There are people here that share the same fears as me, and share the same struggles, and we are all seeking for those happy moments to return. So I'm reminded that while yet the wind may try to blow us to and fro, we can band together and use these solemn moments to strengthen our futures and our friendships. It doesn't mean we still don't feel loss or lack of innocence, but causes us to experience a more truer joy and peace for when we find those similar moments in the future.

Lovely. It sounds peaceful, I needed that, thanks.

Must comment once moar.
Don't know how to describe this one, but it's freakin' awesome.
Orchestral parts are so lovely and emotional but that chorus (if I can call it that way, Spadezer part) part completely grabbed my attention. Like, woah.
Really nice duo.
Would love to hear more stuffz from you two. :>
